XYplorer 13.80 has been released on 24-Feb-2014. Here's a quick introduction to the main new features:
For tagging your files you already had the Label, Tags, and Comment colum in XYplorer. Now you got five more tagging columns, and this time you can customize their name, their looks, and their behavior.

For example, let's add a rating column to the file list.
STEP 1: To add an extra column to the file list, simply right-click the Name column header and choose any of the "Extra" columns, say "Extra 1". You can achieve the same via menu View | Columns.
STEP 2: To customize this extra column right-click its header and select "Customize Extra Column...":

STEP 3: Drag the column to a position of your choice, and start rating files by right-clicking their cells in the column:

How do you jump to that 李小龍 (Bruce Lee) image in your picture folder? I mean quickly, without running a search or applying a filter.

You can copy those characters from some website, e.g. from here: 李小龍.
